Milan, 17 October 2017 - Edison announces that it has acquired a controlling interest in Frendy Energy S.p.A. (Frendy), through purchases today, from four different sellers, of 29,704,909 ordinary Frendy shares, representing 50.078% of capital, at the price of €0.34 per share, for a total outlay of €10,099,669.06.

Frendy's shares are admitted to trading on AIM Italia – Alternative Capital Market, organised and managed by Borsa Italiana S.p.A.

In accordance with the law, the consideration for the offer will also be €0.34 per each ordinary share (the “Mandatory Offer”).
